External HDD Verbatim with SuperSpeed USB 3.0

USB 3.0 heralds the dawn of a new standard for external hard drives, and Verbatim is one of the first manufacturers to install it in its new desktop and portable hard drives.  USB 3.0 delivers bus speeds of up to 4.8Gbit/sec – a ten-fold increase in performance compared to existing USB 2.0 connections – making it ideal for both home- and office-based users who want to transfer large files with the newest and quickest technology available.  The Verbatim USB 3.0 Desktop Hard Drive comes equipped with a PCIe card for seamless USB 3.0 connectivity.  The Verbatim USB 3.0 Desktop and Portable Store ‘n’ Go Hard Drives are available in stores now.
